Meniscal Tear

  • The meniscus is the shock absorber of the knee and spreads out the load between thigh and shin bones
  • Abnormal/Overuse or single trauma causes damage to the meniscus
  • It has no ability to heal by itself and if left untreated will eventually lead to Osteoarthritis
  • Diagnosis is made with a thorough History Examination and Latest Imaging techniques
  • Our aim is to preserve and repair the meniscus where there are different repair techniques depending on type and site of damage
  • A therapy program will be required, which is dependent on treatment performed
